Content

A cunning group of street artists is appropriating public spaces with astonishing artistic interventions. The thirteen artists and their works featured are not only aesthetically motivated but function as social, political and ironic commentary. With the ubiquity of street art, the political and social messages inherent in graffiti are starting to lose their significance. A cunning group of street artists is restoring meaning to this pervasive art form with determination while appropriating public spaces with astonishing art. We Come at Night introduces the work of thirteen street artists whose artistic interventions are not only aesthetically motivated but also function as razor-sharp social, political and ironic commentaries on their surroundings. Artists like Dr. Innocent and French activist Zevs are sanitising walls by whitewashing defaced buildings and using the same sand blasting technique used to erase graffiti to write messages on dirty walls. The colourful figures of Os Gemeos and Nina seem as if they just dont have a place in society. With an introductory text by street art expert Martha Cooper, We Come at Night also features works by Akim One Machine, Blu, Brom, JR, Kami & Sasu, Mare 139, Mr. Horse, Nixfitti and Zasd. The book includes a DVD with a film documentary by Volker Sattel and Mario Mentrup about the Outsides project initiated by Red Bull.
